Maybelline's 2012 Trend Forecast Includes Neon, Crazy Eyelashes, and Lip Art

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Every year, Maybelline releases a "calendar" with 12 beauty looks they think will be big deals in the year to come.
